Project 10 A design project – Stage 2 – techniques


The textile artist Miranda van Dijk uses an image transfer technique to make her exquisite Puur Anders collection of jewellery inspired by nature and memories.

Puur Anders jewellery

I like the idea of using images that inspire memories.  I have photos of my grandparents’ home and my grandparents themselves and would like to feature these somehow in the final piece.  I need to find a way to transfer larger images or break the process down into manageable parts.  At the moment I am still looking at producing a large hanging work, like the noren door curtains I have posted about earlier.

I am concerned that I must make sure to incorporate enough in the way of techniques that were sampled earlier in the course so that I am able to demonstrate the learning process but I must be careful not to overload the final piece with “bits and bobs” just for the sake of it.  Often, keeping things simple is much more effective.

  1. Hi V, yes, I had a go and it works well with my inket printer I got from Freecycle but I am trying to work out how I might do something on a larger scale than A4. My final project looks like it might be about 2 x 1.5 metres. I dread to think what the ink might cost even if I did break it up into A4 sized chunks! x
